The First Snow of Winter
Sean McDuck is forever causing mischief and scaring the hapless gulls, much to his friend Puffy’s dismay. Today is Fly South for the Winter Day, but the duck can’t resist goofing off scaring gulls along the way. In doing so he becomes separated from his family in some cloud cover, where he has a close encounter with an airplane and falls to the ground, breaking his wing. His distraught mother, believing that the fox has eaten him, flies off without him. A lost and stranded Sean is befriended by a water vole, who teaches him how to survive the winter.
This short is dedicated to the memory of Dermot Morgan, better known as Father Ted in the sitcom of the same name, who died of a heart attack during the short's production.
